The Aquadolls Are Your Dirty Little Secret on “Sneaky”

Today, The Aquadolls release the single and video for “Sneaky”, the freshest cut off of their upcoming record, Charmed. Produced by Chris Szczech (The Goo Goo Dolls) in Los Angeles, the new song puts the angst surrounding the uncertainty of a relationship directly under a microscope; this close study fueled by a gritty sound that juxtaposes the heaviness of bands like The Breeders and Veruca Salt, and the hopeful dreaminess of shoegaze bands like Cocteau Twins and The Jesus and Mary Chain.

Instead of attempting to escape these simmering feelings of doubt, the self-coined “mermaid rock and rollers” lean into them, opening the floodgates and letting all of their inhibitions pour into this bombastic cascade of sound. Daydreams about tender nights spent tangled under sheets must cease — there is only room for these anxiety-ridden intrusive thoughts. “Am I just your late night sneaky little thing?” lead vocalist Melissa Brooks questions; though, she’s not entirely sure if she wants to know the answer.

Further expanding on today’s single release, Brooks said, “’Sneaky’ tells the story of the uncertainties of what could come from a late-night hookup. Unsure if the other person is growing feelings or only physical attraction, this song shows the struggle of being someone’s dirty little secret.”

Bassist Keilah Nina continues “A nostalgic tune about that sickly, sweet feeling you get in your gut when you start feeling a little more than lust for that late night hookup. For when you’re stuck in a state of wondering if they feel the same way, or if you’re just wasting time fantasizing about what could be.”
